Do you use iCloud? Dropbox? Or, something else. Kate MacKenzie has tried them all, prefers two, but there are alternatives. The case for iCloud and Dropbox:
I use iCloud and Dropbox. But Dropbox only provides 2GB of free cloud storage and the additional tiers are among the most expensive. Yes, you get what you pay for, but price is an object. For iCloud I get 200GB for $2.99 a month. Dropbox does not have an interim plan, so there bounce to 1TB is $8.25 a month. iCloud on my Mac automatically syncs the Documents folder and Photos to iCloud.
That’s why I use, but I have Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, too. Alternatives?
You may have a need for Google Drive or Microsoft’s OneDrive, and you may be attracted to options from Box and others, but for most of us in the Apple club, it boils down to convenience– how many apps can use the service– and price tag. For that, iCloud wins, followed by Dropbox. AlternativeTo has a better list but note the order of each.
It’s iCloud and Dropbox, in that order.
